wheeldictionary.net was a site that showed pics of many Mini wheels but now gives a security warning.  //www.austinminiwebsearch.com/10%20wheels.html has some of the same pics that were on it. Edit: this seems to be the modern version https://www.mini-forum.de/category-article-list/13-mini-wheel-dictionary/

What is out there today as in 2021 - I am still looking for one or two 6x10 Mamba's, possibly a set of JAP (J.A. Pierce) 6x10 or a set of rose petals or ...  what is out there?

Funny, I rarely even come on here anymore & one thread has been resurrected - One of the Mambas became a lamp base, one was never returned from a loan (and a JAP) so I have 2 Mambas kicking around here still. I believe they are the 6" old style offset to the inside. I put them on backwards so they look like reversed wheel (I think they work that way on unspacered drums for rollers) they have those goofy 205/50x10" golfcart tires - again for rolling cars around

Somebody took all the other orphans - I'm interested in trading for a couple 12" steel wheels

I have  in 6x10:
3 Mamba 6x10 wheels - two good condition, one (spare condition)
2 Sears 6x10's trailer wheels 
The whole purpose of resurrecting this thread - to see who had wheels to swap/sell/trade/etc. so a complete set could be found.

As this is around a 4 year old post what is out there now?  I have a few 6x10's 5x10's set of 5x12's Rover Minilight style, etc.  Added pictures of my "orphans". Are there any Cooper 'S wheels out there? The solid steel wheels are 6x10 came from Sears were called trailer wheels as that is what they are for. (Saw someone advertising them as racing wheels). Mambas are 6x10, 4.5 pair of Magnesium Minilites, 5.5 pair of Magnesium minilites.

do your 6" Mambas have the extra width to the inside? I'd sell em ($100 a pair, split shipping?, they are the only ones of value to me) if I had takers for some of the 5" ones too. Let's see if anyone has 6" pairs of others to sell n trade n see where it goes.

what are the two 6" mambas worth to you? I have a set of four, but for the right price I wouldn't mind a back up (or two).

Mamba wheels differences (10") - I have a 5" pair and a 6" pair - they look the same on the face but the extra inch of width is to the inside of the wheel on the 6" ones. So I have a multitude of pairs of 10" wheels I'd like to see if I can put some matches together - I have:

2 x early Cosmics, 2 x 5" JAP's, 2 x 5" Mambas, 2 x 6" Mambas (the extra inch is to the inside of the wheel

Anyone have some similiar orphans that need 2 more? I'd love to trade em out, maybe we can do a pass it along favor - I just want a set (4) of deep-dish 6" x 10" wheels (I'm pretty open to any style that's readily accessible & can add some cash) but may have to settle on the non-deep-dish 6" Mambas. Any takers?
